More Frequently Asked Questions

How often are the meetings?
Cub Scouts usually meet in their Dens once a week, unless it is the week of a monthly Pack meeting. Pack meetings are held for all Cub Scouts and their families the first Thursday of each month. Beyond that, it depends on the Den and Pack: a Den may hold a special activity, such as a service project or visit to a local museum in place of one of the weekly meetings or in addition to the weekly meetings. Likewise, the Pack may conduct a special event such as a rocket launch, campout, or service activity as an additional event, rather than a substitute for its monthly Pack meeting.

How can I learn more?
The best way to learn about what a Cub Scout really does is to talk with a Cub Scout who is engaged in the program. Alternatively, you can learn more about the Cub Scout program by selecting "Contact Cubmaster" (above) and asking questions, or leave your phone number to receive a call from the Cubmaster.
